The deposition transcript portion in question can be found here http://eater.com/archives/2013/06/20/heres-the-racist-paula-deen-depo s ition-trancript.php

If you were white and lived in the South in the 60's your probably a racist by any objective measure.  I'm not sure I'm horrified by this.

/wait am I now a rascist?

Mock26: 1986, which TMZ notes is the year Paula admitted to using the word after "a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head."

Sorry, but that is a justifiable excuse for the use of the n-word.


I guess, if you're looking for an excuse to use a word.

That guy at the chicken shack was n*ggardly with the ranch sauce.
 
2013-06-20 07:36:25 PM
My personal experience has been that the people who use that word in the most derogatory and vicious manner are black people talking about or yelling at other black people.

And racism isn't limited to old white people by any stretch of the imagination, and it certainly isn't limited to the United States.

Wow do you have to be looking for an excuse to use the word?  Sometimes words come out when you are angry.

Why are you self censoring?  nubianrdly is not related to n*gger.  Their etymologies are completely different.

Also, let's please talk about the staggering unfairness of how Dave Chappelle gets to say it but poor Paula Deen and Bill O'Reilly (et al) can't.

Willing to bet Oprah has said worse things in reference to white people at some point in her life. Not excusing Paula Deen for anything, just saying it doesn't make her a racist.

Of course she has said it.  In her defense, she was just quoting her servants.

Well, and nobody in their right mind would ever say such a thing.

Okay - gosh - Paula Dean is a product of her environment (include area and age) and probably
wont ever "catch up" with the larger progressive community
I know a woman like this, same age, southern, who swore to me she could NOT be racist because
she worked alongside "those people" on her daddy's farm as a child -
bite your lip, people and do as my mother did - she taught me so well I can't force the "n" word
(or the "c" word) out of my mouth without feeling dirty and stupid for using "small" and "useless" words

This too, will pass

She's old? Who knew!
 
2013-06-20 07:48:47 PM
Who cares? And her handlers are right. Open racism was common and the N word was commonly used.
Geeze, it happened, that's the way it was.
You can't judge past behavior with current standards. It does no good, you can't change the way it used to be.
And racism is still living large. We just don't openly express it anymore. And we openly pretend that we don't, and never did condoned it.
In fact, we are so afraid of being accused of being racist, that we won't call it out on others that clearly demonstrate it.

Because the world is full of hypocrisy and double standards, get used to it.

The last 2 presidents have admitted to doing cocaine yet someone that admits that in a background check for a security clearance won't get the clearance.

/no I've never don't cocaine. It was just an example off the top of my head.
 
2013-06-20 07:53:44 PM
Sometimes, when discussing English profanity with Chinese grad students, you have to explain why the n-word will end your career but other profanity won't - and they may not understand what you mean by "the n-word" unless you explain it. I think that gets a pass.

The one time white people can say ni**er, OK: if it's Christmas Eve, and it's between 4:30 and 4:49 in the morning. If you white, and you're on your way to Toys 'R' Us to get your kid the last Transformer doll, and right before you walk into Toys 'R' Us, some black person runs up beside you, smacks you in the head with a brick, knocks you to the ground, stomps on your face--"take that, you cracker-ass motherfarker!" Riverdances on your head--"take that, you cracker-ass motherfarker!" Takes your money, pisses on you, and runs away--if you white, at that moment, you can say "Somebody stop that ni**er!"

Matter of fact, if you white and that happens to you, you can say ni**er for a whole month! But you gotta walk around with the police report in your pocket. In case any black people catch you sayin' ni**er, the police report will act as your freedom papers. "Hey, I heard you saying ni**er; let me see your farkin' papers. Gimme the papers; show me the papers!" [pretends to read a sheet] "Christmas Eve! 4:48! You just made it, motherfarker! Pissed on you! ...I hope they catch that ni**er!"

Does that mean that watch Blazing Saddles is wrong now too?
 
2013-06-20 07:56:58 PM

Smelly Pirate Hooker: Well, it's hard to refute that, because it seems most old white people ARE farking racist. In the U.S., anyway.


 One of the topics of the recent Bilderberg meetings was whether or not to allow racism to spread outside of white people in the US, but I believe it was decided against.
My theory is that they're planning to release it the next time there's a major world conflict.
 
2013-06-20 07:57:20 PM
I'm no fan of hers, but she's being honest. People in the South were openly racist then. Come to think of it, lotsa people in this country are openly racist NOW.

So, she should have used the word reggin in reverse instead, or would you rather hear her call black people slaves? Just forget about her, it's not like she can destroy the future of a multi-culture future. We're already multi-cultural and only a few people can't let go of the fact that there are no master and slave classes anymore.
 
2013-06-20 08:21:52 PM
it's still considered racism cause black people were stupid to come to america.  and no one likes to be called STUPID

Oh lawdy! I have seen that video before, but today is the first time I noticed sad & fat Kenny Rogers shaking his head in hammy disapproval. Watch the last few seconds.

Who gives a shiat?  Paula Deen sucks.  And is fat.  And is old.  She will probably be dead soon.  Or at least off TV.

See if you can suss out why Blazing Saddles works and what Deen said does not. Study it out.

Savannah is 67% black. Not that it matters a lot but there's not a lot of blatant racism here if any. Paula just happens to be the worst thing to get famous from here.
